Virtual Insight Week 2021

We are currently accepting applications for two virtual insight weeks, held respectively during 19 – 23 July and 16 – 20 August.

Deadline for applications is 14th May 2021.

These insight weeks will be virtual due to COVID-19 but will, nonetheless, aim to give aspiring lawyers an idea of the type of work that we do and what it means to be a lawyer in our industry. We are looking for highly intelligent, driven people who have a real interest in the Firm’s specialisms and want to be challenged with complex work, in a fast-paced environment.
